Plasma Concentrations of Adiponectin in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease and Coronary Slow Flow.
In this study we investigate the plasma concentration of adiponectin in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), those with coronary slow flow (CSF) and in healthy subjects. METHODS: this study was conducted according to a cross-sectional design involving 30 CAD, 30 CSF, and 30 healthy subjects. These subjects were sourced from the Dr. Zainoel Abidin Center Hospital, Banda Aceh, Indonesia, between December 2017 and February 2018. The plasma concentration of adiponectin was measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) according to the manufacturer's specifications. RESULTS: there were statistically significant differences at p

HIGH cholesterol levels are of concern when "bad" LDL outnumber "good" HDL . One drink has been proven to readdress the balance.
Abstract The plasma membrane (PM) spatiotemporal organization is one of the major factors controlling cell signaling and whole-cell homeostasis. The PM lipids, including cholesterol, determine the physicochemical properties of the membrane bilayer and thus play a crucial role in all membrane-dependent cellular processes. It is known that lipid content and distribution in the PM are not random, and their transversal and lateral organization is highly controlled. Mainly sphingolipid- and cholesterol-rich lipid nanodomains, historically referred to as rafts, are extremely dynamic "hot spots" of the PM contr...
